Twas The Month Before ...

T'was the month before Christmas, When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying, Nor taking a stand.

WHY the "PC" Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
"It might hurt people's feelings," the teachers would say
December 25th is just a ' Holiday.'

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down on the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod --
Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down,
And at Lowe's the word Christmas - was not to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away faith,
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it was started.
So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'
Sipping Starbucks: Listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say --
SHOUT "MERRY CHRISTMAS" not Happy Holiday!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! KEEP Christ in Christ-mas!
Jesus Is The 'Reason' for the Season!

It's his BIRTHDAY Nov. 4th!

This is a fairly recent photo of my oldest son, Charles Anthony Walden, known to me as 'Tony', his wife Susan (yes, that's her he's got his head resting on) and others all know him as Charlie or CDub. Tomorrow is his birthday. He will be 40-yrs. young. I don't like using the word 'old' as it makes me FEEL like we ARE aging! It's also something I used to hear Paul Harvey say on his radio programs. He always referred people as being 20, 30, 60, something or other 'young'. So, I adopted that from him.

40-yrs. ... I recently shared on facebook in the group 'I Grew Up In Atascadero' a lil blurb about my labor in stopping at Beno's on my way to the hospital, Paso Robles War Memorial, to have him. I didn't know if I was having a boy or a girl. I had names picked for either or. I'm so glad it turned out to be him that I had. This mother could not be any more proud of a son than I am of him! I adore him and his family and look forward to spending more time with them once my hubby Bill retires.

Words alone cannot convey the love I hold in my heart for YOU!
